The big news in New Orleans today is that one of our city council members does not like certain individuals she considers overpaid and ineffective staff at city hall, gets pissed off at people in line at the Wal-Mart, and uses electronic mediums to vent to her friends and colleagues about it.
This brutal and damning investigation into what the real problems in New Orleans are was conducted on the sly by an activist lawyer and the city sanitation director. They had no political purpose for this investigation, they were only out to uncover corruption and ineffective government and ensure transparency in the process. They even took their case to an appeals court to ensure their first amendment rights to tell these truths were not violated.
I'm glad they are looking out for the little guys and gals.
It is a slippery slope, people. If we let city council members get away with having opinions, the next time we look, New Orleans roads will be disentegrating, our schools will be dysfunctional, crime will be out of control, we'll pay too much for abusive utilites, and our health care infrastructure will fall apart.
We'll fight these opinionated and tactless city officials at the check out line in Wal-Mart so we don't have to fight them at City Hall!!
